Jonathan MS Pearce

Jonathan MS Pearce is a philosopher, author, columnist and public speaker with an interest in writing about almost anything, from skepticism to science, politics and morality the environment, because everything is philosophy. A former teacher, God – or the universe – has afflicted him with primary progressive multiple sclerosis. He can no longer play football with his twin boys, but he can still write a good column and book. Well, he likes to think so anyway. His books cover a wide topic area: atheism, the creation of the universe, the Resurrection, the Nativity, free will, poetry, and skepticism to name a few, as well as zombie pandemics, kids’ adventures and how to be a father of twins.
